Charlyn Corum is working towards obtaining a BFA in ceramics, a BA in journalism and a minor in digital art and interactive media at IU Southeast. Charlyn comes from a family of eight and was homeschooled k-12. The years before adulthood greatly influences who she is today. As a young child Charlyn worked a lot with her hands and everyday played around with making new pieces of “art.” Charlyn also read National Geographic, which is what inspired her to become a journalist. Charlyn lives with her two dogs, Ekko and Ghost, and her boyfriend. Together they are pursuing degrees and hoping to graduate and buy their own house with an area for a small ceramic studio.
